Last Days Zombie Apocalypse review and house rules
« on: September 14, 2018, 06:40:14 AM »
Lately Osprey has increased its menu of wargames rules with the zombie variant and published Ash Barkers' Last Days: Zombie Apocalyps.



Since I am a great lover of the zombie gaming genre but good rules are few and far between I inquired after these rules, read some (positive) reviews and, encouraged, proceeded to buy and play them. This resulted in a pleasant Friday night game of about 90 minutes in excellent company. However, how did LD:ZA conduct itself?

You can read it here. https://pijlieblog.blogspot.com/2018/09/last-days-zombie-apocalypse-unhappy.html

Since I wasn't very happy about the game but still liked some bits of it a lot, a friend of mine and me set to develop house ruled fixes. These are here:

I'd like to hear what you think about the houserules.

How can you be grumpy

That is a very fair and honest assessment of the rules. I, too, think they are disappointing but I do like your house rules a lot. That said, it is not a game I shall be playing, especially when there are far better rules systems available.
